The prime minister announced on Thursday that Northland would move from red to orange at 11:59pm midnight, while the rest of New Zealand will remain at orange, Newshub reports. But Te Tai Tokerau Border Control leader and former MP Hone Harawira said many Northlanders would not welcome the move to red, and wanted the risk managed conservatively. “It’s an absolute bloody disaster for us here in the North,” he said. “We want to stay red until we hit the 90 [percent vaccination mark].”
